Pastors at Evangelical Churches Jump on Blogs and Podcasts

Posted on February 25, 2006

The Boston Herald reports that pastors at many evangelical churches are using podcasts and blogs to reach out to the younger demographic. However, some pastors are concerned the message of a sermon isn't fully received in a podcast or blog format.

Allen Wolfe, director of the Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College, told the Boston Herald, "There is a lot of feeling outside the evangelical community that whatever you get by using this (technology) is not going to be substantive. It's too quick, too easy."

For a sermon that is meant to be heard a podcast or video would probably have more of an impact than a blog. But getting kids to actually listen to them or watch them probably isn't any easier them getting them to attend church.
